We pride ourselves on our no-kill policy, which means that the animals in our care stay with us for as long as it takes to find them their forever homes. 

Ainmhithe actively searches for permanent, quality homes for our dogs, cats and equines. The Ainmhithe website and Face book page provides current, up-to-date information on our dogs and cats and information on all our work.

About Rescue Animals Ireland

My name is Maureen Ryan and I want to share everything I know about rescue animals to help you take better care of yours! I grew up raising rabbits, cats and dogs and have learned a lot over the years. I have also spend many years volunteering for my local rescues. Hopefully, my articles are helpful and as you read them you'll learn a little more about rescue pets.
